    Following the ‘show me your 2852 connie’ topic, I really think this legendary reference deserves its own topic, instead of the shared ‘vintage Constellation’ thread.

    Show me your 167 or 168.005 here! Let’s discuss these marvelous pieces in depth.

    I haven't managed to catch a good photo of mine. I wasn't entirely sure of the appeal of what they call 12-facet Constellations here, but after having one on the wrist I really get it. Delicate and precise.

    I’ll offer my two pie pan Constellations. First, my 1964 reference 167.005 in stainless steel with rose gold hands, indices and onyx inlays on an Omega number 12 stainless steel seven row beads of rice bracelet. Second, my 1962 reference 14900 (the predecessor of the 167.005) in gold cap with a crosshair dial on a black alligator strap.

    168.006 from 1965. Dial is OM, but not signed as such. Milanese bracelet is 18kt, original to the watch.

    In sunlight - just amazing.

    My only 168.005 left. This one is a keeper with crosshair, unpolished case, marker at 3, onyx... all the best features of this ref.
